Thursday, April 8, 1999 - - Hoansz, ille Herald - - A-3 Georgia Power Co. Warning of Scal00n The Georgia Power Company has released ilfformation about a utility seam affecting customers in West Georgia, Southwest Geor- gia, and East Alabama. Georgia Power would like to alert its cus- tomers about imposters disguising themselves as Georgia Power em- ployees in order to victimize eld- erly citizens. These scaru artists, white males in their mid to late twenties wear- ing what appea(ed to be a Georgia Power uniform, have taken money and valuables from elderly citi- zens after they were allowed inside the customers homes. These am- posters have also enticed the cus- tomers to come outside their homes for various utility related reasons and then robbed the customers' homes. The seam artists have com- mitted robberies in the cities of Americus, Claxton, Thomson, Tifton, Valdosta, and Washington. "Most Georgia Power work in the conmmnity generally requires lim- ited interaction with out custom- ers," said Ken Millet, corporate security representative for Georgia Power. "Most services our employ- ees provide rarely require access to the interior of a home." Customers should be suspicious Advertise In The Hogansville ' Herald You will do better with us. Ca]] 706-846-3188, Dan Stout Fax: 706-846-2206 of anyone wanting to perfo.rm unscheduled work for Georgia Power or for any other utility com- pany. Customers slhould checkfor a Georgia Power enaployee identi- fication card which ncludes a pho- tograph; they may call Georgia Po,wer's local offices to confirm this work is needed before allow- ing anyone access to their private property. Anyone having infor- tnation related to an, y of these crimes should contact their local law enforcement agency, the Geor- gia Power security at 404-506- 4116, or the Better Bus'iness Bu- reau at 800-768-4222. A POEM AND OPINION By ' M. Rosser Lunsford (Poet Laureate Putnam County) Mars? The race is on to get to Mars and look around at all those stars, I think it's great that men will try but I can't see a reason why... There are some things I could say but they're going to try anyway, I'm sort of glad we have such men that don't know when to holler "when".. I'm quite happy down here on earth striving to write another verse, at least they won't find on Mars, old politics and smelly cars. "A ??????
